My guy and I have been discussing what kind of drugs Paul Reuben was on. I say Acid, he says PCP. Any other suggestions?

The stop motion is really cool though. What the hell was he thinking when he went into a XXX theater as well as collecting art of undressed minors?

Nothing beats the tranformation over the years of one star from the show from this





to this

Rob Zombie was a production assistant on the show.

[quote=wiki]Many now-well-known TV and film actors received their major breaks on the show, including Phil Hartman, as Captain Carl; Laurence Fishburne, as Cowboy Curtis; Jimmy Smits, as "your authorized Conky repairman"; Lynne Stewart as "the most beautiful woman in Puppetland," Miss Yvonne; S. Epatha Merkerson, as Reba the Mail Lady; Natasha Lyonne as one of the children, Opal; Steve James as Derek, Reba's one-time boyfriend; and Sandra Bernhard as Rhonda the Picturephone Operator.

Other major human characters include the King of Cartoons (played by Gilbert Lewis season one and William Marshall all subsequent seasons), Tito the Playhouse Lifeguard (played by Roland Rodriguez) season one, and Mrs. Rene (played by Suzanne Kent). Among the other characters, John Paragon played Jambi the Genie and voiced Pterri the Pterrodactyl; Ric Heitzman voiced Mr. Window; Kevin Carlson voiced Clocky, Conky, and Floory; George McGrath voiced Globey; Alison Mork voiced Chairry, Chicky Baby, and the Magic Screen; Anna Seidman voiced Penny; and Wayne White voiced Dirty Dog, Mr. Kite, and Randy the Bully. Ric Heitzman, George McGrath, and Wayne White all voiced the fish and flowers. Rob Zombie was a part of the Production Staff

The music for the show was provided by artists including Mark Mothersbaugh, The Residents,Todd Rundgren, Danny Elfman, Mitchell Froom, Van Dyke Parks, George Clinton and Dweezil Zappa.[/quote]

In its entire run, the show won 22 Emmys as well as other awards.

"I'm just trying to illustrate that it's okay to be different—not that it's good, not that it's bad, but that it's all right. I'm trying to tell kids to have a good time and to encourage them to be creative and to question things," Reubens told an interviewer in Rolling Stone.

with the people involved, no wonder the show is the way it is Very Happy

In 1991, a year after production wrapped on the final season of "Playhouse," Reubens was arrested in Florida for indecent exposure.





Dusty: I'm guessing you were unaware of this incident. But now does it really surprise you that there could be drug references or innuendos in Pee Wee's Play House?

Darqcyde: Oh. Fear. O_o Never have I been so afraid of Laurence Fishburne.

Am I the only one who remembers the original 1-2 hour comedy special the show eventually came from?

Am I the only one who remembers that that original show was rated R and most deffinitely NOT FOR KIDS?

I never understood who watched that show and thought it would make a good kid's show. It worked out pretty well but dear lord the original was ranchy perverted and absolutely hillarious.

I grew up watching PeeWee's Playhouse and Ren&Stimpy.

...and now, years later, I get trashed and watch them again.

Hmmm...
